Bar Harbor as Day Trip From Boothbay

Can Bar Harbor be done as a day trip from the Boothbay area or should I plan on spending the night or a few days. I have two weeks and undecided if to do a week in Boothbay and a week in Bar Harbor or just stay put in Boothbay where I have a really nice rental set up. If I stay in Boothbay I would like to do Bar Harbor as a day trip. Thanks.

Personally I would want to spend the night, but you definitely could make a nice long day trip out of it.

If you have 2 weeks you could spend 1 week in Boothbay and take the second week to explore the midcoast from St. George penninsula, spending 2 or 3 days doing this and take the rest of your time driving to MDI and enjoying things here. There are lots of posts to give you plenty of inspiration of things to do, see,stay, and eat. Go to the individual town sites, they are a wealth of info. You will see everyone has their "favorite"!!!

What time of year are you going?? This will help make some of the decisions for you.

Have a great trip. Don't forget to stop at Pemiquid Lighthouse-my favorite lighthouse!!!
